Backyard Chicken Keeper/"Eggspert"

With an audience of nearly a million followers that spans the globe, 5th generation chicken keeper and "eggspert" Lisa Steele is well-recognized as the creative force behind Fresh Eggs Daily®, the most popular destination for natural poultry keeping advice on the internet, and one of the most influential players in the backyard chicken keeping community.

Lisa has been dishing out advice on raising chickens, ducks and geese naturally as well as gardening and growing herbs via her Better Homes and Gardens award-winning blog and social media platform Fresh Eggs Daily for more than a decade. 

Her articles have appeared in Backyard Poultry, Hobby Farm, Chickens, Grit magazines and in the Farmers Almanac.
Carrying on her time-honored family tradition (she grew up across the street from her grandparents chicken farm in Massachusetts), Lisa is also a Maine Master Gardener and accomplished "coop to kitchen" cook. 

She shares recipes using fresh eggs from her coop and fresh produce and herbs from her gardens on the farm in central Maine she shares with her husband, their corgi, tuxedo cat, and  a mixed flock of nearly three dozen chickens, ducks and geese.


With more than 140,000 copies of her first six books in print, making her one of the most popular top-selling poultry authors of all time, Lisa recently released her seventh - an egg cookbook titled The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook - with the Harper Horizon division of HarperCollins.
